When you wear those big earrings, long hair, and things
You got style, girl, that sure is wild
And you wear that cute trench coat and you’re standin’ and posin’
You got soul, you got too much soul…
- BRENTON WOOD
I ain’t got no long hair, so I got my best coat on and just posed!
When you are embarking on an all new journey into a new season, it becomes mandatory to welcome it in style. Winters are officially here and and in the terms of fashion, WINTERS= COATS, TRENCHES AND JACKETS.
While jackets may give you a complete biker girl look, Short coats give that business like vibe, the long coats essentially give you that feminine look, no matter what kind of a personality you have. I believe, and I have observed that Winter coats are for everyone- every shape, every complexion and every height. They are a winter staple that you cannot do without. Fads come and go, overcoats are timeless, elegant and very classy. From tweeds to plaids, fur and wool, overcoats can be demure enough for a day look and feisty enough for a party look. Somehow I think they have an element of mystery to them as well( think all those detective stories or those villains vanishing away in the dark of the night with an overcoat trailing behind with a hat). Gosh that’s dramatic! But I do believe that girls in overcoats look absolutely classy.
Here is one of my favorites this season. The CARLOS COAT by STALK, BUY, LOVE in deep mahogany shade is a stunner that stands out from the crowd. The coat is styled so beautifully with fur trimmings and pleats to fit me like a dream. Its cosy as a lover’s hug and snug as my winter blanket! In short, its my winter solution whether its hails or snows outside. And if its a little sunny darling, just button it down!
Here is how I styled this amazing piece for a casual and a formal look-
LOOK 1- GIRLY, SASSY, YOUNG
For a day look, I teamed up my coat with these absolutely sexy leggings with cut outs long the sides. It lent a super sporty and fun element to an otherwise normal look. Jump, groove and have a good time swinging away in your long coat with this kind of ensemble. I added a white crop top and white slip ons for that devil may care kind of feel. And its cutely hot in its own way don’t you think?
You can get these very comfortable and well fitted leggings again by STALK BUY LOVE here- NAVY RAILEY LEGGINGS
LOOK2- GIRL’S NIGHT OUT
Stepping out for a party in winter can be tricky as you can’t show off those curves in the itsy bitsy dresses anymore(unless you are super hot!). But you can’t look drab either right? So cover up in something like this CARLOS COAT to look as sexy as can be and party without getting a frostbite.
I got ready to party for Dilli Ki Sardi in this fitted shimmer dress and layered it up with my fave mahogany coat. Short dress with a long coat is a killer combination that never fails to impress. Add boots(another winter essential) to complete the Oomph factor and get ready to set the dance floor on fire. You can accessorize with a neck piece as well or a head piece for a more dressy occasion but I didn’t go for the overkill. Sometimes, less is more.
These two looks are poles apart in terms of mood and occasion. But its all about styling- The same coat can give you different looks for different days. Pick your style and get the balls rolling!

Till next time, stay cozy!
